Maybe, but also count me among the people who think this would be really creepy, the sort of thing I'd end a friendship over if it went on for more than a few minutes. Doing this for weeks? Yeah, that's not "prank," that's "mentally disturbed stalker."

In the first or second season of Face-Off (the makeup/effects competition show, not the Travolta movie), there was a challenge to do exactly this (albeit for a relatively brief interaction -- the disguised person had to sell their spouse/significant other/parent something in a shop without being recognized, including actually speaking to and in some cases touching them. All the contestants managed it, although in a couple of cases there was suspicion that the other person might have recognized them and played along.
